Roasted Sweet Potato, Veg and Feta

"One of those dishes that looks incredible and taste even better. It might take 40 mins in the oven, but the minimal (5 min) prep time means you can relax whilst the oven does all the work. Great for week nights, and when you need a healthy veg fix. If you need the meat, you can add in a couple rashers bacon for another layer of flavour."


Cook Time: 45 mins | Servings: 2 | Difficulty: easy

INGREDIENTS
SWAP SHOP
2 sweet potatoes, skin on and halved along the length
1/2 butternut squash, seeds removed and cut into quarters
